Wine Tasting Notes
The Collection 242 blend is dominated by Chardonnay. The perfectly ripe Chardonnay grapes lend the wine its aromas of ripe, sweet fruit complemented by subtle oaky notes. The palate is rich and ripe with a luxurious texture that coats the palate, the signature of an outstanding Chardonnay. The Pinot noir and Meunier grapes from the Vallee de la Marne complete the wine's broad, luscious, smooth and juicy character. The finish is energetic and fresh.
42% Chardonnay, 36% Pinot Noir, 22% Pinot Meunier
